Hammerin' Hank Greenberg. Terrific player. Would have broken the Babe's single-season HR record had anti-semitic pitchers not colluded and walked him for a month-long stretch at the end of the season when he'd reached 54. Kept his cool and won the hearts of Tigers fans all over Michigan even as Father Coughlin ranted against Jews in his weekly radio show all through the '30's.

Not sure what this Halas character is up to. Seems he came out of nowhere to attack D-Wolf after the Wolf simply made a joke responding to the original posted question. Why? What's to be gained?

And as a Red Sox fan, I gotta say, dude...you're in no position to talk smack about the best team in baseball right now. Especially if you're a Yankees fan. What did that highest payroll in baseball get you this year? Another first round playoff boot? Yep. We must have missed you at the rolling rally this year.

And if the best you can do to rip on "Red Sox Nation" is to call it "gay"....well, I guess that writer's strike really is having an effect on the quality of the jokes being told out there.

Excellent. Needed a good chuckle. Although I am kind of lost today since I don't get to see the Pats steamroll another team.
How bizarre is it to see the Celtics kick ass again after all these years?

Unreal. Gotta give Ainge props for making that Garnett deal (and Ray Allen) happen. Although an assist does go to Kevn McHale for allowing it as well. Don't know what Lurch was thinking there.

Now if we could only get that magic to the Bruins.....well, I shouldn't press my luck there.

BTW, I got Road Trips Vol. 1 in the mail yesterday, and while i've only listened so far to the Alabam>Promised opening, i'm def. impressed. Solid sound and they did pick from some great shows. The bonus disc is much of the 10/31/79 show, which is also great. If they take care to produce similar discs from great tours (i.e. April '78) they might be on to something.
